The final game of the season at the King Power is a huge one for Leicester fans, with the 2015/16 winners looking to avoid relegation to the Championship.
The Foxes have had a season to forget, with long-term manager Brendan Rodgers relieved of his duties in April and replacement Dean Smith struggling to motivate his side to avoid the drop. With just one win in their last eight home games (D2 L6) and 10 defeats from their last 15 Premier League games, things are looking bleak, but they have one final chance to keep themselves in the division and go again next term.
They face a West Ham side who have struggled away from London this season, picking up just three away wins all campaign. They could also take advantage of the Hammers’ thoughts possibly being elsewhere, with a Europa Conference League final on the horizon and their Premier League status already secured.
